They know they suck

Interesting that most of the political signs out here in WNC, the GQP candidates avoid any RED on their signage. That use to be the repug color of all their political propaganda. They use blue, that being the Dem color. In our local paper there all lists of candidates for each party. The Dems proudly state at the top of their list, “Democratic Candidates for 2022”. The Republican list is backgrounded in yellow and the heading says, “Official Voters Guide for responsible Citizens”. Nowhere does it mention Republican.
That same list was handed out at my precinct when I voted last week. Some may grab that yellow list and not know they are republicans. Especially some of the down ticket candidates.
All they see is “Official Voter Guide”. They may think those are all the candidates, the only ones.
“Ashamed of their in color.”

the ballot and the books list candidates as "prefers Dem" or "prefers repub" etc. and it's voluntary. We have a lot of "non partisan" jobs, too, where it would be helpful to know their basic philosophy before voting.

repubs have been leaving the "R" off of their road signs as well, though I haven't seen a lot of signs out this cycle for the major races. Mostly local players. Not really worried about Murray/Smiley. Should be a slam dunk.
